Welcome to the Southern Queensland Centre of Excellence in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Primary Health Care. Also known as Inala Indigenous Health Service, we are a Queensland Health service for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Located in Inala, 18 km South West of Brisbane CBD, our clinic is staffed by GPs, nurses, allied health and Aboriginal health workers, and visiting medical specialists.
Our service is spread over four local sites: Our main clinic is the new building at 37 Wirraway Pde. We still use our previous clinic at 64 Wirraway Pde for allied health consultations. We also run a small outreach service (Elorac Place) for women's and children's health in Ellen Grove. Our research and community team are located in the Inala Plaza, but we do not see patients there. Additionally, we provide a monthly fly-in medical service to Cunnamulla, 750 km west of Brisbane.

||Research in the clinic
Visitors to our clinic waiting room may notice a few extra research staff hanging around this month. Researchers include locals Corey Kirk and Sissy Tyson. Our projects involving patients in the waiting room include: kids with ear infections; adults getting health checks (looking at depression and anxiety); and health literacy (how much information about health gets understood).
We only ever take on a research project if , in the long run, it helps our patients. The community jury is best placed to decide this, so no research gets done unless they approve it. The research must be able to provide evidence about treatments or systems which will improve the life of our patients.
|April 2015||HEAL program||We are running another HEAL program - 'My Health, My Mob', starting 14 April and running for ten weeks. Each week has a 2-hour morning session of exercise and health education. If you have diabetes or a chronic heart or lung condition, you may be eligible. Contact Rick Brewster-Webb, via reception.|

Although care is taken, this site, and links from it to third-party sites, may possibly contain the names or images of people who have passed away, which may sadden and distress some Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
